The Ray C. Anderson Foundation is a private family foundation committed to advancing the legacy of its namesake by supporting environmental sustainability initiatives. Ray’s five grandchildren, along with their spouses, comprise the NextGen Committee of the Foundation, which makes recommendations to the board of trustees for worthwhile grants and initiatives. In 2018, the NextGen Committee has decided to focus its philanthropic efforts on programs that help reverse global warming.
To advance this mission, the NextGen program has issued a Request for Proposals for a single grant of $90,000 to fund work in the 2019 calendar year by an existing or new program that will measurably reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere as measured by metric tons (or “tonnes”) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), either by preventing the emission of those gases or by sequestering gases presently in the atmosphere.
To be eligible, applicants must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.
